Rescue Me ID: 16-04-23-00361Raisen (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Raisin is a medium small (35 lb) lab/pit mix, black w white markings , super sweet and smart, about a year and a half old. She shouldn't' live with cats (she definitely has a high prey drive), and based on what we know of her now, she probably wouldn't be great with kids under 6. She' s been fine with older kids- she just tends to be scared of things she doesn't know, and little kids are unpredictable. She loves to dig more than anything, but has spent lots of time hanging out next to farm fields and hasn't dug in any of the beds. She's spent hours off-leash with me while I was working in the garden and she stayed right with me. We ... (Read More)have been working on hiking off-leash- she needs more training to be able to do that, New places with exciting sights, smells, people, and dogs are trickier for her, and I wouldn't trust her off leash without more training on recall. I bet she would love living with another dog. She is a little shy of strangers (barks) but after they ignore her for a few minutes and she sniffs them, she's been totally fine. She still needs a lot of training, especially on leash. She tends to pull, and can be reactive to other dogs on-leash. She has been able to play really well with all other dogs we've introduced her to off-leash. We've never taken her to a dog park- it's always been one other dog at a time, usually in an enclosed area or a big field far away from the road. If she gets enough exercise (two walks a day, or a long hike, or some play time with other dogs), she will be super calm in the house. She sleeps a lot, and she loves to snuggle, loves her people, and is generally the sweetest dog. She has been very responsive to training so far, although is still working on lots of things. She has not been possessive of her food, and likes treats but isn't always motivated by them. She seems to love praise the most. She sleeps all night in her crate, and recently we've been letting her sleep out of the crate on one of our chairs. However when we first got her, she nibbled on our houseplants and anything plastic to leather we left out, so at first she might need to be crated when alone. When she goes into her crate when we leave the house, she whines for about a minute, then she is fine. That being said, she hasn't been left for more than 3 or 4 hours very often- she definitely needs a family who is around a lot and is willing to work with her on training. She deserves to be in a place where her humans adore her, have the time and space to let her play and run, have experience with dogs, and can help her be her best self. She is very eager to please.

Rescue Me ID: 15-11-05-00558Emerson (male)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you a well-balanced confident leader? Is your home environment calm and peaceful? Do you have experience working with strong intelligent breeds of dogs? Are you able to provide a well-structured routine? Are you a single adult or a couple looking for a companion dog? If you are, Emerson wants to meet you! Emerson is a 65 lb 4-year-old male Pit-Bull Terrier. He is neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Emerson is crate-trained and house trained. He LOVES using the treadmill for indoor walks, as well as walking outside when on leash. Emerson is making great strides in his training and we feel he may be able to go to a home with another ... (Read More)dog who is calm and relaxed, but will wait for just the right fit. His interactions with other pets are fine under structured circumstances. But, we do not feel that Emerson would be successful in unstructured off-leash interactions at this point, because he becomes overly excited. However, every day he is showing improvement in this area! Nonetheless, we also recommend a home without children, so that a calm environment can be provided. Emerson likes having a routine. He thrives with a consistent daily schedule. Emerson is affectionate and loves a good head rub more than anything else. Emerson is eager to please and playful. Emerson does not like to be separated from his people if they are home. Don't expect to leave him out in the yard and have him be happy about it! However, if you leave the home, he quietly waits in his crate for your return. Emerson is currently being fostered by and is working with Paula Bergeron of the Good Dogma Canine Rehabilitation and Training Center in Grafton, NH. Emerson's foster/trainer, Paula, will offer his adopter four free lessons, and continued support for a positive beginning. **Emerson is part of our Home for the Holidays Special and his adoption fee has been reduced to $150 until the end of January** Dear Santa, I have been a very good boy and I was hoping, if it wouldn't be too much trouble . . . could I have a person and a home to call my very own? Love, Emerson To adopt, please submit an application at this ink: http://form.jotform.com/form/11880935459 or visit www.pottersangelsrescue.org to view additional adoptable dogs and for more information.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Vermont
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Vermont if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost Vermont Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Teddy Roosevelt owned Pit Bulls. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting. A disproportionate number of Pit Bulls are put down in major American cities each year. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
